Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.

Tomodachi Game Season one was relatively successful as compared to other phycological thrillers series however, the anime didn’t typically rise near the top of Crunchyroll’s popular anime list.

Hence financially, manga of the Tomodachi Game sales weren’t good enough in April 2022.

Fans did enjoy the traditional high-stakes survival games formula, which is evidenced by its IMDB user episode rating.

The availability of a studio is another significant factor in renewal as Okuruto Noboru is not a big production house, and consequently, they don’t do sequels. In fact, the studio has only produced only four animes since 2018 but Tomodachi Game is their highest-rated series of them all.

Furthermore, we got to see at the end of Tomodachi season one, Yutori and Tenji are going to the fourth game, and the name of the fourth game is Friendship Guilt Court, which was a cliffhanger for the last episode.

Nevertheless, if the studio does revisit for a sequel, we can expect Tomodachi Game Season 2 trailer and Tomodachi Game Season 2 release date by the End 2024.

In the finale of Tomodachi Game season one, “What’s Most Important to Me Is…” Maria explains that Makoto was left with 500 million in debt when his father died.

Tomodachi Game season one covered Volume 6: Chapter 26 from the manga, which means Tomodachi Game season 2 will begin by adapting Volume 6: Chapter 27, titled You Guys Are Friends, Aren’t You?

The second season will start with Tenji Mikasa and Yutori Kokorogi participating in Game 4: Friendship Guilt Court, the so-called Friend-Sin Trial.

However, they can reject the game and move on with Game 5, but in the process will find Makote Shibe without a defense against Manabu in the mock trial.

Since Shibe violated the game s’ rules by telling about the game to his father if Tenji and Yutori abandoned Shibe, he would “disappear.”
